Read full description of the books IN ROGUE BLOOD H:With "In The Rogue Blood", James Carlos Blake reinvents the American historical novel. His writing talent and execution of detail make reading this novel a cinematic experience. By imagining Cormac McCarthy's interpretation of Sam Peckinpah's The Wild Bunch, one would have the grand scope of Blake's canvas.Set in the world that was the American West, this is the story of the ties of family and the outside forces and circumstances that tear brother from brother. Fleeing a shattered family, two young brothers set out into the land of Texas. In 1845 Edward Little leaves behind in Pensacola a murdered sister and an alcoholic father. Journeying through New Orleans into the Mexican bordertowns of eastern Texas, Edward and his brother John discover that not everyone places the same value upon human life. When the brothers join opposing armies, they find that even the ties of brotherhood cannot span across the Rio Grande during the raging Mexican-American War.
This novel is at once a masterful tale of the West that once was and a view of the families that attempted to overcome the vast wilderness that became America. Blake has created a portrait of the American West as it once appeared -- beautiful, barren and deadly.
Read information about the authorJames Carlos Blake is one of the America's most highly regarded living authors of historical crime fiction. Born in Mexico, his family moved regularly when he was a child, living in various towns along the border and coast before finally settling in Texas when he was six. After a stint in the army, Blake attended the University of South Florida and received a Master's degree from Bowling Green State University, both universities where he would later teach. In 1997 he left teaching to write full-time.
Blake's first novel, The Pistoleer, was published in 1995 to overwhelming acclaim. Its unusual format—with each chapter told from a different character's perspective—caused critics to dub it an unusually promising debut. Since then Blake has written eight novels and one collection of stories, most of which dealt with real-life characters from the American west. He lives and works in Arizona.
